Counsel for Would-be Spouses (Men)

In recent times, I have found myself having a lot of conversations with single men (not many of ladies :-), about choosing a spouse and getting married (I guess ladies prefer to talk to women like them). As a matter of fact, so much burden has been heavy on my heart in this regard. So,…

Is there the Authentic Design for Sex and Love?
